Folks over at Wikipedia claim that Father’s Day is honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds and the influence of fathers in society. Apparently, many countries celebrate it on the third Sunday in June, as we do in the US. It’s the first time we learn France is among those countries, so we can’t but wish all the dads out there a happy birthday!

Sure, Father’s Day is not the only reason we are sending our best to French fathers, what Uber has planned for the day is too. Yes, we know, it’s average marketing, yet these vintage bad boys are something we’d definitely like to be chauffeured around in Lyon. The gig the ride sharing giant is doing is the result of a partnership they are running along Roadstr. The vintage car rental website is giving away five of their cars for an offer only available on June 21.

People will be able to choose one of the five breeds we listed above and enjoy a ride that will not last more than 30 minutes. Only one passenger is allowed per vehicle, and the vintage cars will be available from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Did we mention the rides are free of cost?
